I want to have words.
I want keys
for the locked door,
to
the blocked staircase
to
the tower top
where the stars
wait for their observers
to ask questions.

When the sky wants
to have words
it makes people
like us
with questions
like water
in an Earth shaped bowl
spilling
over
with wisdom
that evaporates
when it strikes
the hot pan of
what we don’t understand
and falls again
rains again
on an unsuspecting
populace.

How few are we?
How many others rest
in this…absurd pretense
of peace,
that is built upon
the backs of strangers
they’ll never meet?

Show me a hand
filled with keys.
The doors must fail.
The people must be free.

    Hi Charlie,

    I haven’t seen any of your poems for a while. I always enjoy them.

    This one talks about the sky wanting to have words. Interesting! What does this mean to you?

    I hope life treats you kindly these days, knowing that you have been through a lot over the years.

    It seems there are always challenges and sometimes it feels like we’ve all signed up for an intense learning program.

    Much love to you and your loved ones,

    Dagmar
